Long-term CHELSEA target Marco Asensio will leave Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of the season
Asensio joined Real Madrid from Real Mallorca in 2014 and has taken in 250 appearances for the Blancos – scoring over 50 goals and collecting three La Liga titles and three Champions League crowns.
However – there has been alot of speculation about his future at the club and whether or not he is part of Carlo Ancelotti’s long-term plans – which has alerted a number of top level clubs.
It is no secret that Chelsea are massive fans of the man and have been linked with a move for the last few transfer windows – and it was believed that they would get a chance to sign the Spaniard at the end of the season.
Now – The Spain international will reject the club’s offer to renew his contract, according to Relevo.
Asensio’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been in talks with Madrid since December and the club have put an offer to extend his current deal on the table, but he has reportedly decided to bring an end to his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The reports also adds that Chelsea have make contact over a possible deal
Asensio is a brilliantly gifted midfielder – there is no doubt about that and if he does come onto the market – he will be hot commodity.
He is achieving everything he has ever wanted at Madrid – and winning trophies on a yearly basis – but if he is not part of the plans at the Bernabeu, then it is time to leave.
But we are not sure that CHELSEA would be the best move – they already have so many players like him at the club.
